Ivy - Soul Calibur V V by CrystalGraziano Ivy - Soul Calibur V V by CrystalGraziano
This costume took a couple months to make. The purple snakeskin spandex is actually from 3 awful clubbing dresses that I found online, because purple snakeskin spandex apparently does not exist in yardage form (I looked everywhere!). The straps and detailing on the coat and shoes are made out of white pleather and purple suede. The teddy, thigh inserts, and cuff are all made from the same mauve lace, and the teddy has a built in bra. The dicky, gloves, and choker were sewn from a burgundy cotton.

The pauldron was sculpted out of Klean Klay Firm, molded in silicone, and cast in resin, and her gauntlet is made of sintra. The finger tip armor is actually thimbles, apoxie sculpt, and zip ties. The ankle armor was made out of craft foam for minimal weight. Lastly the sword hilt was sculpted and cast in resin, the handle is apoxie sculpt and MDF, and the blade is sintra. I currently only have the untransformed sword, but I'll be making the whip version soon.

Awesome cosplay. I can't blame you for not copying her outfit EXACTLY because her breast defy gravity and don't fall out of the piece of string holding it lol

I have to say this, madam: you pull it off!

A realistic and decent Ivy cosplay. Her design in SCV is better than the one last SC (I found that to be abusive).

I have developed a working prototype of a Whip-Sword out of K'NEX. Get this: the prop is RETRACTABLE! There's even a link to a demo video in the description.
